I Do Not Like Narcissists

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 412 People

    Can anyone ever teach a Narcissists empathy?

    Or are they secretly hiding it? By leaving them, will they ever figure out the importance of learning and growing together. Could they ever appreciate what you have to offer as well? We all are subjects to learning lessons.

    I can feel the sociopathic abuse building up

    in a coworker again. We've had major problems in the past so I know what's going on. All of a sudden he's talking to everyone he's calling everyone that passes him at work over to his desk to talk about himself. I've noticed he does this a lot more when he rides his motorcycle...

    They think the world revolves around them.

    Even if something has absolutely nothing to do with them, they'll put themselves at the center. And there can never, ever be a bigger victim than a nar. They can out-victim anyone.

    I see a lot of people using the term narcissist

    without truly understanding the meaning behind it. It is not someone with high self esteem or just someone who is in love with themselves. It is someone who has fallen in love with an image that is not theirs and expects others to love that false image of themselves. When...

    that they are narcissists. Can people who are so oblivious & deeply rooted in narcissism really change? I'm in a relationship with one, whose mother is one and so on. So how do you get them to realise or start self helping? I know it has to do with setting boundaries and making...

    Something I noticed when dealing with a

    narcissist is their tendency to forget where they put things. It's always somebody else's fault or responsibility. Projection is the name of the game. If they cannot find it, then you must have hid it somewhere. Or if they don't remember where they put it, then you have to time...
